How to disable JetPack nag messages in the WordPress Admin interface

I really like WordPress, and I really like JetPack. I use the plugin on many client websites, who usually have their own WordPress.com ย account, which is necessary to enable the plugin successfully.

Most of them however choose not to sign up for a payment plan, which as of 2017 leads to (now rather annoyingly frequent) JetPack upsell messages at the top of the admin screen. So I as the administrator, am constantly exposed to such messages, and I was wondering how to suppress them – not being the target audience here.

Thanks to a super helpful article by Matt Medeiros I found a great solution with this one-liner of code he as kindly supplied on his website, together with his opinion on such messages:

/* remove JetPack upsell messages */
/* https://mattreport.com/disable-jetpack-upsell-ads/ */
add_filter( 'jetpack_just_in_time_msgs', '_return_false' );

Add this to your child theme’s functions.php file and those admin nags are history!

Thanks Matt!
